Cork–Mass & Theology on Tap

Mass of SS Philip & James: All are welcome to assist at Holy Mass organised by Juventutem Corcaigh, 8pm this Friday 11th May at SS Peter & Paul’s, Cork City, followed by a social for those aged 18-35.

Theology on Tap: At 7:15pm on Monday 14th May, there will be a talk on the Blessed Trinity at Cork’s Dominican Centre, for members and friends of Juventutem Corcaigh. The points to be considered during the talk include:

– What is the Nature of the Most Holy Trinity? Why is this important?

– Old Testament traces of the MHT / New Testament revelation of the MHT

– Patristic theology: MHT worthy of martyrdom; St Augustine’s De trinitate

– Scholastic theology: St Thomas; Father & Son as active & passive in regard to generation

– Blessed Trinity and the person / marriage / life. Heaven = Communion of Communions

– Blessed Trinity contra divorce / abortion / contraception

– Blessed Trinity denied by Islam

– Our final purpose, the beatific vision, is beholding the Blessed Trinity, penetrating the mystery

Join us for 36th Chartres Pilgrimage!

Plans are afoot for a delegation from the FSSP communities in Reading and Warrington to participate in the Chartres pilgrimage on Pentecost weekend. The theme of this year’s pilgrimage is “St Joseph, Pilgrim and Servant”.

We will be going with the Latin Mass Society. Departure is from London on Friday, 18 May 2018 at 7:30am. Arrival back in London about 8pm on the following Tuesday, 22 May 2018.

The pilgrimage consists of a walk from Notre-Dame Cathedral, Paris, to Notre-Dame Cathedral, Chartres, covering 70 miles in three days. This involves long hours of walking, early morning starts, arriving at the campsite late in the evenings and requires a reasonable level of fitness.

Payment in full by 25 March (Palm Sunday this year). Bursary may be available for young people to reduce costs.

Contact Fr O’Donohue for more information: fatherodonohue@gmail.com

Chair of St Peter–1st Class Feast

By concession of the Holy See, the Chair of St Peter (22 Feb) is a Feast of the First Class in FSSP apostolates. And by decree of the Sacred Apostolic Penitentiary, dated June 7, 2008, a plenary indulgence is granted under the usual conditions to the members of the Confraternity of St Peter on this feast (22 Feb). The conditions are:

– to have the intention of gaining the indulgence
– to make a Sacramental Confession (within several days before or after the feast)
– receive the Holy Eucharist (within several days before or after the feast)
– to pray for the intentions of the Holy Father, for example a Creed, Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
– to be free from all attachment to venial sin. This last is difficult, but if it can’t be fulfilled, a partial indulgence may be gained.

Members of the Confraternity can also gain plenary indulgences on the day of their admission into the CSP and on the Feast of SS Peter & Paul (29 June). To sign up, please visit the “Confraternity” tab above. And for information on indulgences click here.
